Dec 23, 2015 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Taking off

Hong Kong, China, taken on December 22, 2015

Right before taking off from Hong Kong to Siem Reap yesterday, the plane stopped at the perfect spot for me to witness the opening of the sky to let the sun out. The gigantic rays illuminated the layered mountains, and if you look carefully, you could even see the cable cars of Ngong Ping 360 on the right!

Oct 04, 2015 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Boundaries

Toronto, Canada, taken on August 23, 2011

Airports are the gates to many boundaries and one of my favourite places in any city…aside from the queues that always accompany. My departure from Toronto in 2011 after the summer holidays was quite memorable as I was sent off by a timely sunset at the airport. Au revoir!

Aug 28, 2015 – [Friday] Anything Goes: Breakfast at KEF

Keflavik, Iceland, taken on August 24, 2015

Final meal of my most recent trip to Iceland – breakfast at Keflavik airport. As my flight was 7:35 in the morning and I had stayed in the airport all night, a gigantic breakfast sounded pleasing, but this was almost even too much for me. Let’s see what we have here…scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, beans, smoked salmon, potato wedges, and toast. Boy, I was so stuffed that morning that lunch wasn’t even necessary. Bye bye Iceland, for now!

January 04, 2015 – Border

[Travel time] Home sweet home…or not??? Major delays at London Heathrow meant that I had to miss my connecting flight to Glasgow, but before I dealt with that, I had to get through border control first. “Up to 30 minutes” huh…I think it took around 40 minutes to get to the front of the line. What a great end to the trip and great beginning of the year in the UK…at least I got in!
